That's the team! I went to NC State b-ball camp in those days (Norm Sloan) and Duke (Bill Foster) as well. Had Monte Towe as counsellor - who is now back on bench as asst to Sidney Lowe.

Carter Finley stadium - hasn't changed too much.

funny, we might have attended the same camp...

I always liked norm sloan, he was really nice to me...(though he couldn't due magic tricks like holtz but on the positive side he never became a domer)

I was fortunate to spend summers in raleigh during those years and would only get down for a football game or two in the fall...usually against duke either home or away...

I have some good memories of the campus, carter-finley and reynolds coliseum...

monte towe, must be one of the only players to get signed based on another player (i.e., thompson) the way he did...

Remember when there was "Duke's Bill Foster" and "Clemson's Bill Foster"?

Yep.

Clemson - you know why their fans always wear orange?

To go to the game on Saturday, hunting on Sunday, and back to road crew on Monday through Friday.

Best hit I ever saw in a football game was Woody Hayes against a Clemson player....
